Camp Lo - Stone & Rob Caught On Tape

Stone & Rob is a decent album by Camp Lo. While it hits the mark on a few occasions, it does not capture the magic of their 1997 jump-off, which they seem to be trying to recreate. Perhaps their next release will be more Blu-Ray than eight-track.

review

Reks - More Grey Hairs

While sonically better than the original, More Grey Hairs is simply a rehashed version of its predecessor. Its not necessarily a terrible thing, with many tracks having a similar taste Reks is unable to fully give a broad spectrum of who he truly is

review

Bobby Valentino - The Rebirth

While The Rebirth has its moments, Bobby Valentino's sub-par pen game is what proves to be his greatest downfall, turning otherwise notable singles into quickly forgotten stanzas

Pharcyde - Bobby Evans Mix

Although some tracks were curiously omitted and the mixtape only limited to the crew's first two efforts, Bobby Evans turns in a faithful ode to The Pharcyde that both fans and newcomers can enjoy

review

Ghostface - Ghostdeini The Great

Ghostdeini The Great isn't an album than it is a reminder of the indelible impression Tony Starks has carved in his career. Unfortunately for those who already own most of Ghostface's archives, heads may avoid this one.

review

Black Milk - Tronic

With another strong outing in Tronic, Black Milk continues the trend of Detroit's musical revolution. With its quality beats and above-average raps, Motown has delivered another dope album to go along with their revolution

review

N.E.R.D. - Seeing Sounds

While most of the album is your standard Neptunes, experimental affair, N.E.R.D. suffers through immature lyrical content and limited subject matter, essentially detracting from the overall experience.

review

Prodigy - HNIC Pt 2

Unfortunately for HNIC 2, with bland beats and sorry rhymes, this is a shoddy send-off disc he leaves behind during his government-sponsored vacation

Mac Lethal - 11:11

11:11 is a welcome change of pace from the normally paranoid RSE roster. Despite its inevitable (albeit quasi-stereotypical) similarities toInterscope's melanin-deprived cash cow, Mac adds yet another golden star to Rhymesayers' impressive r

review

Havoc - Kush

The Kush unfortunately gives listeners less reason to wonder why Havoc has played the back for so long, while Prodigy has remained the (sometimes-swollen) mouthpiece of the crew. Perhaps now he'll stick to crafting those moody heatrocks more often.
